Simplify your network roll-outs with RADWIN’s cloud-based R-Planner. This planning tool assists with securing optimal coverage and capacity while minimising capital and operational expenditures. It also helps to maximise spectrum and is an indispensable tool that provides value when planning new projects and evaluating. RADWIN’s R-Planner predicts radio performance by evaluating line-of-sight, topography, typical weather conditions and self-interference. It identifies the ideal sites, indicates the number of radios required and identifies the best frequency parameters. It also provides reports and analytics.
The R-Planner then works with the WINTouch App and sends all relevant data to the technician. Once the technician receives the data they can use WINTouch to upload the settings to the customer premise equipment (CPE). The App is available to download for free on Android and iOS. To easily establish a service estimation at any given coordinate use the RADWIN Service Estimation Tool (SET). It will tell you if your client is covered, and what service you can offer – This can be done immediately and without time-consuming site-visit! This streamlines your sale process, cuts site survey expenses, and enables you to explore untapped areas.
R-Planner is an indispensable tool that provides value when planning new projects before network roll-out. Start planning your wireless network to secure optimal coverage and capacity!
